Community Service Block Grant Recovery Act Funding for Vulnerable and In-Crisis Community Action Agencies

This memorandum is to alert the Administration for Children and Families (ACF) that Community Service Block Grant program funds made available under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (P.L. No. 111-5, Recovery Act), may be at risk for fraud, waste, and abuse at certain community action agencies that State agencies have designated as "vulnerable" or "in crisis." Our November 2009 review of ACF records identified 20 community action agencies in 16 States that the States had reported as vulnerable or in crisis as of October 30, 2009. These 20 agencies are scheduled to receive a total of $44.9 million in Recovery Act funds.
